Endive is better known as Chicory in England. It is a bitter leaf green that can be found at markets through the winter months. Although it great in a salad we decided to braise and serve it with roasted lamb.
First remove from any packaging and wash the heads.
Thinly slice a shallot, half each Endive head and gently crush a garlic clove.
Place all the ingredients in a baking dish and add a little butter, salt and pepper.
Fill with water so that it just covers the Endive. Then place some baking parchment over the top.
Bake in a low oven 300f for about 40 minutes turning once half way through.
Meanwhile roast your lamb and cook the potato.
We also had a little Swiss chard that we sauteed
Serve with one or two half heads of the braised Endive.
